There are very few of us on this planet earth who do not have continuous access to the internet, and even less who are not familiar with electronical devices containing chips such as nintendos', x-boxes, desktop or laptop pcs just to name a few. All have some form of contact opportunity with others.
Most of the time we enjoy the freedom it gives us to connect with people on the other side of the world without being charged an overwhelming amount of money as with traditional telephones. However, when these same devices crash with ALL our information on it, one can't help but reminisce about the 'good old days' when pen and paper were used, while at the same time having a nagging feeling of dependency entering ones' mind concerning the way we live now.
When my pc broke down last week, I was at my wits end. Together with a technician, I spent the good part of two days trying to retrieve my work, not to mention helplessly trying to remember the many phonenumbers I had stored on my hard drive.
Finally, after many frustrating hours, I was able to log into my agenda and addressbook, call or email people I had appointments with and apologize for the missed calls and/or meetings, in the hope they would understand. Luckily, most did.
Still, I went out that same day and bought myself a daily planner with addressbook as a backup so if ever something like this happens again, at least I will be prepared! (assuming off course that I write all the information in it I also have on my pc, but thats another story :) )
This week so far has been a race against the clock, so as to make sure that the readers of Eden & Elle magazine would not go hungry having to wait for their monthly shot of great articles, ideas, advice and gorgeous photos', and dare I say so myself, the issue is turning out to be divine, hot and dewy with a dexterity you will not be able to deny! Due to the pc crash, I re-connected with people I hadn't talked to in a long time, resulting in 3 new contributors and such high quality content it will blow you mind!
